Cup of Life

Crying does not make you weak

Choking on words doesn’t mean you can’t speak

Lying does not make you horrid

Being sad doesn’t make you morbid

One lie can break a father’s soul

But, 100 truths can make it whole

One slice can take my hurt away

But would be the cause of Mom’s pain

One smack can make her flinch for life

But one caress can ease her strife

You will do things you want to take back

But as a person, you are not bad

Just learn from it, make it up

And always think of a half-full cup
